Here are some facts about Ebola:
o It is not contagious when the carrier is not showing symptoms.
o It is only contracted through direct contact of infected bodily fluids.
According to the CDC, the incubation period for symptoms is 2-21 days with most averaging 8-10 days. We are coming up on the close of this window with the individuals identified as being in contact with patient #1 before he was admitted to the hospital and, so far, none of them have become sick. The most recent patient, however, flew on an airplane with a low-grade fever on Monday and was diagnosed with Ebola on Tuesday. While all passengers of the flight are being contacted to be closely monitored, unless she sneezed directly into their mouths, odds are pretty good they didn’t catch Ebola.
So, go buy yourself some hand sanitizer, wash your hands regularly and don’t let people get their bodily fluids on you. Not only will you not get Ebola, you won't get the common cold or the flu either (BONUS)!
